Lynne Lancaster Lecture: Technological Innovations in Ancient Rome: What Can Ancient Concrete Tell Us About Roman Society

-

Location: 104 Bond Hall

Lecture Summary

unnamed

In this talk, Ms. Lancaster will introduce how Roman and modern concrete are different and then trace the role that the introduction of concrete had on the development of imperial architecture in Rome. Starting with the Colosseum in 80 AD and ending with the Baths of Diocletian in 305 AD, she will look at particular building methods relating to concrete vaulting that were developed to allow the builders to construct larger and more complex structures. Ms. Lancaster will then relate these techniques to the social and economic context in which they occur and explore how this changes over time. Topics include brick stamps and the development of the brick industry and its effect on social mobility, the eruption of Vesuvius and its effect on the availability of building materials, the marble trade and its effect on aesthetic expectations within society, the effect of economic problems of the third century on construction in Rome.
